Tax Day Open Thread: Space Shuttle Flies Over Georgetown in Effort to Impress Devonta Pollard

Welcome to Tuesday! Your taxes are due today and just as a reminder that the government is powerful and can do Hunger Games type things, NASA decided to fly the damn Space Shuttle Discovery all over Washington, DC. The pics below were all sent to me or ripped off twitter, and if you have any others feel free to send them to THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON at casualhoya@gmail.com.

In Hoyas news, 5-star forward Devonta Pollard, who was supposed to visit campus over the weekend, apparently did so yesterday and may still be there today. Smart move by the staff to push the visit back so as to coincide with the shuttle flyover. If that doesn't impress the kid, nothing will.
